Executive Master of Business Administration
The Executive MBA program uses the cohort model, with students working in the same teams for their first year. By working this deeply and personally with your cohort team, fellow students and coaches, everyone benefits. Cases consist of real business scenarios that put you in the role of the decision maker. Assignments and class discussions mirror the challenging situations that you and your fellow students encounter in your professional lives.
Grow your knowledge, and your network
Starting year one, we divide your cohort into teams that are made up of professionals with expertise in finance, marketing, operations and other functional areas. The result? A learning experience that simulates what it’s like to be on a real-world leadership team. Everyone gets a turn at the helm. A team may end up as your own personal board of directors, acting as a network and sounding board that you can turn to throughout your career.
Because the EMBA is part-time and designed for working professionals, you’ll be able to bring your work to school and vice versa.
Up close and interactive
Each new classroom experience presents new opportunities to learn,
in different ways. Your instructors will present you with
interactive lectures, cases, presentations and more. This is learning
hands on and face to face, in a simulated leadership team that
collaborates on projects, bringing all of your life and work experiences
into play. This is a safe and encouraging place to make and learn from
new ways of thinking (and mistakes).
Clubs and councils outside the class include: Mentors in Business, the largest business mentorship program in Western Canada, with more than 300 members. The Net Impact Executive Club is comprised of students who want to make positive environmental, social and economic impacts.
Graduate Business Women’s Council follows a philosophy that knowledge-sharing and networking with executive women can lead to enhanced careers and greater diversity in leadership.
Our cohort method
You’ll be learning alongside a group of approximately 45 senior professionals who have, on average, two decades of experience. Vastly different from any schooling you’ve pursued in the past, our EMBA uses an applied, interactive approach. In fact, our faculty act as facilitators who are able to leverage the wealth and diversity of experience in the room.
Your cohort will be the best and the brightest—from every conceivable industry. They’re thought leaders. In fact, they’re a lot like you.
